New World of Warcraft Raid Cutscenes Show Future Dragonflight Bosses
World of Warcraft has released the Vault of the Incarnates raid and the story cutscenes that come with it–one of which showcases future threats players must face in Dragonflight. The two foreboding World of Warcraft cutscenes feature the threat and charisma of the Primal Incarnates and the danger they represent to Azeroth.
The two cutscenes can be found in World of Warcraft now that Dragonflight Season 1 has begun. The first cutscene takes place immediately before the Vault of the Incarnates raid, while the second takes place after players defeat its final boss, Raszageth the Storm-Eater.
In the first cutscene, Alexstrasza the Dragon Queen tries to empower the Mother Oathstone to restore the Aspects to their full power. Despite the five dragonflights’ Oathstones being functional, the Mother Oathstone refuses to activate. Raszageth appears to mock Alexstrasza for being unworthy before flying off to the Vault of the Incarnates to free her siblings and usher in the “Age of the Incarnates,” thus setting the stage for the first raid in Dragonflight.
The second Dragonflight cutscene begins with Khadgar and Kalecgos, who act as guides in the Vault of the Incarnates. They enter the scene and confirm Raszageth’s death before breathing a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, the prisons of the other three Primal Incarnates–Vyranoth the Frozeheart, Fyrakk the Blazing, and Iridikron the Stonescaled–were heavily damaged during the fight with Raszageth. The three break free of their prisons before swearing vengeance upon their sister’s killers and all who bow before the Titans. Khadgar and Kalecgos teleport away before they are obliterated by the three proto-dragons.
World of Warcraft players are intrigued by the story developments from the Vault of the Incarnates raid. Like the preceding cutscenes in Dragonflight, they are of impeccable quality and show off the animosity between Alexstrasza and Raszageth. In her short time in the spotlight, players enjoyed Raszageth for her compelling motives and excellent portrayal, and are eager to see how her older siblings hold up in comparison.
Other players are less impressed by the Vault of the Incarnates cutscenes. While well-made, the events from the cutscene were predictable to most players. Some are also worried another raid full of elemental proto-dragons might get old, and hope World of Warcraft mixes up their adversaries to keep things fresh. Luckily, World of Warcraft is pretty good at avoiding fatigue from oversaturating raids with the same kinds of enemies. Though players don’t know exactly who or what they will face in future Dragonflight patches, they can expect World of Warcraft to introduce plenty of twists before the end of the expansion.
World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is available now for PC.
